Question for written answer E-001810-19
to the Commission
Rule 130
Ingeborg Gräßle (PPE)

 Subject:  Grading system at the European Schools
 Answer in writing 

The European institutions pride themselves as employers on being able to offer advantages such as access to very high-quality European schools for the children of staff recruited by them. Under the regulations for the European Baccalaureate, holders of this qualification enjoy the same rights as nationals with equivalent qualifications to seek admission to any university in the territory of the Member States in question.

1. Is the Commission aware that certain Member States (DK, SE, DE) have adopted or are preparing to adopt provisions that would make it harder for school leavers with a European Baccalaureate to obtain access to their universities? 2. What measures has it taken or is it preparing to take to ensure that recognition of the European Baccalaureate is not compromised by unjustified changes to established equivalence rules in certain Member States? 3. Is the Commission making active representations to the Office of the Secretary-General of the European Schools and to the Member State authorities in a bid to uphold recognition of the European Baccalaureate and prevent it from being devalued?
